Thank you, Susan, for accompanying and supporting me along this most difficult part of my journey to date. Losing my daughter so unexpectedly last year deconstructed most everything I thought I knew about the path of life. Your presence, compassion, and the gentle use of your skills and various tools truly brought light into a dark place. The healing has begun and I am deeply grateful.
Susan is a warm, engaging counselor/coach whose very delight in the presence of her client awakens the Spirit within. I unabashedly refer clients to her often, knowing that they will be safe and well cared-for in the embrace of her deep and kind Presence.
Working with Susan allowed me the clarity to move forward.
Thank you for orchestrating a session that led to such rich insight, Susan Grace. Your work is a reminder that the “better story” is within reach – and you help me reach it!
For a while my husband asked me, “what do you get from talking to Susan?” Then, after a month of serious life stresses, including a death in the family, work deadlines, and other trauma, he said, “Wow, you’ve been so calm, I didn’t even realize how much we’ve been dealing with.”
Susan holds an uncommon depth of heart that allowed me to self-reflect in a healing and transformational way. She helped me uncover the most empowering truths about myself and my life. I am very very grateful and blessed to have worked with her.
In addition to her great warmth and humor Susan brings a wealth of tools to her sessions. Working with her is always a surprise and an adventure.
Working with Susan Grace is profound and playful at the same time! To be supported by her gentle wisdom has been a blessing to me during tremendous transitions.
I continuously felt her gentle, patient and yet fiercely determined commitment to meet me where I was and yet point the way toward my own essential self.
Susan sees a higher vision of myself than I can see and holds it right in front of me. She inspires me to be myself.
After our session I get back to that peaceful warrior state, knowing I can advocate for myself, yet in a calm state. It feels good, and I thank you so much for that.
Working with Susan for a few weeks catapulted me towards my true self instead of just meandering around in my head.
One finishes feeling integrated and loved, with definite goals to work toward.
I’ve worked with a number of highly-skilled life coaches and therapists. She’s one of the best. I highly recommend this work for anyone seeking to restore balance, peace and contentment.

Susan is an oasis of calm and serenity. She guided my busy mind into a quiet state where I could hear my own wisdom.
I truly have a good time with Susan. We laugh a lot, proving that inner work doesn’t need to be full of anguish.
My heart and head have found a meeting place because of our sessions. I have much more clarity in my life.

Even coaches need coaching, now and then! Susan’s sensitive and intuitive probing was just what I needed.
Our conversations cause me to remember the place of riches and opportunity in which I stand, so I can’t help but move forward in bigger ways than I previously imagined possible. I have found in Susan a kindred spirit and a source of invaluable support. I’m sure you will too.
Susan brought new life to The Work, and revealed nuances that eluded me. How? She lives it. She stays with my thoughts, but more importantly gently leads me home.
When I was beginning my coaching practice, I was wanting a skillful master to coach me through my fear and resistance so I could experience what it felt like to have the kind of support I wanted to provide for my people.
When I asked her to help me move toward building my coaching practice, I thought I had things figured out and just needed a little support. But as my path toward this goal took turns I hadn’t anticipated, Susan saw me through confusion, fear, and heartbreak. I have accomplished what I asked for help with…and a great deal more.
Susan’s calming energy creates a judge-free, supportive space where I feel completely safe to explore the scary, uncomfortable corners in my mind and to playfully and gently dissolve my painful thoughts. I love how free and open I feel following a class led by Susan!

Coaching for Coaches
Designed to help break through a stuck place and make a quick shift. Excellent for moving through a deeply held limiting belief on a core issue.
Even though we “do our own work” diligently, we’re sometimes limited by our own blind spots. Being facilitated by a trained coach often gives immediate traction to move forward.
Sometimes ongoing mentoring relationships evolve from initial momentum coaching. This allows me to serve as a witness and support for a few coaches as they continue their life’s work. I relish these special connections.
I also occasionally offer group workshops and teleclasses for coaches. Contact me to find out more.

I think The Work 101 compliments Martha Beck coach training perfectly; it adds depth, clarity, and a deeper understanding to the thought work we do in the Martha Beck training program.
I was recently facilitated by a graduate of Susan’s The Work 101 for Coaches, and it took me so deep into my work and helped me move a mountain of a belief. If you can’t go to Katie’s School, take Susan’s class! You and your clients will be glad you did!
Her guidance opens sacred space for me. In her nourishing way Susan will guide you to your kinder self.
Susan has such a unique and calming presence and talent at putting everyone at ease. I not only deepened my practice with ‘The Work’, but also learned so much about how to facilitate a group with grace, ease and transparency. It’s so refreshing.
I had no idea of how limited my use and understanding of The Work was until I had a chance to learn some of its depth and power in Susan’s class. This class will improve your coaching skills, and your life experience.
Susan is an island of safety. [Her class on] The Work 101 made me so much more comfortable with the process.
